From the Harford County Sheriff’s Office:
[June 12, 2013, Edgewood, MD] — Harford County Sheriff’s deputies have arrested Andre Darez Jordan, 15, of 1806 Graymount Way, Edgewood, charging him as an adult with attempted 2nd degree murder, 1st degree assault, 2nd degree assault, reckless endangerment, and firearms violations in the wounding of a 15 year-old Edgewood youth.
The youth had suffered a grazing gunshot wound to his abdomen on June 10th while walking in the 1800 block of Grempler Way.
On Monday, June 10th, at 8:05 pm, Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to Grempler Way, for a report of a shooting. Deputies arrived to find the juvenile victim had been grazed by a bullet. He reported he was walking with some friends on Grempler Way when he saw a fight occurring between two people. The suspect, later identified by police as Jordan, is alleged to have a pulled a gun from his pocket and fired at the boy grazing his abdomen. He was treated at the scene by the Joppa Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company but refused transport to the hospital.
Sheriff’s detectives arrested Jordan in the evening hours of June 11th at his home where he was taken into custody without incident. He was transported to the Harford County Detention Center and after being seen by a Harford County District Court Commissioner, was held on $500,000 bond.
A victim of society. So sad. So eager to be an adult. And I’m have no doubt from a Christian background, deep rooted morals, values and good PARENTING. This youth has been a role model student/young citizen until now. So sad. Guess “Dad” needs to take him hunting more often? Baltimore maybe??
Probably doesn’t know who his father is.
You don’t know who your father is punk come around my way and say something like that
YesIndeed - Real Conservative says
Well Look-y Look-y folks…as a hardworking resident of Edgewood, ITS GREMPLER WAY AGAIN! Oh the shock that yet again the little crime pool behind the Old Giant/Save A-lot. Once again don’t count on your councilman and leaders to do anything about it because they know you don’t vote, and when/if you do, you jump in the democrat bandwagon that says if you vote Republican they’ll somehow take away stuff. Modern day slavery with the whiff of a liberal speech about how the bad ol’ republicans are on Rt 40. As for so called conservatives in Harford, Not all, but unfortunately the ones who are supposed to be leaders, trust me you have some work to do in making sure this tent expands. Listen up Rt 40 GOP, first try by not to hosting the windbag from Towson all-white association at the Harford County Sheriffs Office last month…real smooth Rt 40 club in changing the message to bringing in minorities (all colors)…idiots who wouldn’t know conservatism if it hit them in the face. And on the flipside of that I find just the opposite Black Panther movements just as moronic and accomplishing nothing in changing the message that has been grossly. Pick up a book by William F. Buckley and then hit the reset button and try again.
So what do you have now…dione guthrie walking around touting how he now has purchased a gun as if he all of a sudden is above board with the anti-gun “Owe-Malley” agenda crammed down MD law abiding citizens for the past year. Funny…last election he was quick to throw a quick smile behind a room of Edgewood loyals at the community council meeting when slick haired, sun tan model Omalley made the trip to edgewood. Where was dione in Annapolis speaking out for gun owners, where was his signature on any petitions. Now that the bill has passed all of a sudden he needs to let folks know he’s the closet Chuck Connors of Harford. And I declare if you don’t know who Chuck Connors is please don’t even respond…only dating myself.
Edgewood you get what you deserve if you fail to really read between the lines.
Tax records show his address is an absentee owner. Family must be renting the home. Does not live in the Grempler Way area..Address is for newer town homes near 152 in Edgewood. So he was in this area (where he does not live) with a gun at 15 years old, for what reason?
“Absentee owner”? Nice bit of rhetoric there, how do you know the owner isn’t an involved landlord or doesn’t have a local property manager handling every detail of the property?
If only his teachers had been there for him, this may not have happened
Advising against shooting another human is not in the contract, so they won’t comment on this situation.
I taught this young man in middle school…..there was nothing that his teachers could have done to help him then – only two years ago. He ruled the roost at home….very bright, articulate, but street wise…..that is where is interests were…..so sad but not surprising.
Soul Crusher says
Its a shame that today’s youth find it so easy to pull a trigger. Why can’t they just settle their differences like men and not like this? This is just another sad case…..
Put a fence around edgewood than give them all guns, the problem will take care of itself.
If only we could amputate your hate.
Soul Crusher says
Wrong story pal, get with it…..
Put a fence really shutup your dumb let me find you I’ll put a fence around you
Tried and Frustrated says
Most of the comment are full of hate and racism, you people need to get up and out more often. Surprise no one have not blame Obama, oh wait it is early.
I’m just waiting for the “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon” quote.
If you’re wondering why the sitting president of the United States would try to taint the jury pool of the entire country by making that kind of statement… I’m sort of wondering that myself. After all, they say he’s intelligent but spouting off about ongoing criminal investigations when you possess absolutely zero facts makes me question his intentions.
Kind of like the comments that appear in this forum actually.
Without doubt… the only difference is the range and scope of the influence involved. Most would agree the president reaches a broader more easily influenced audience than the Dagger.
What the hell does trayvon have to do with this
Tried and Frustrated says
Michelle you are right on that one because you people think your teacher are baby sitter and the school is your day care center. It’s summer break OMG what am going to do? I have to become a parent for 10 weeks.
It’s easy. They hand over responsibility to the police. Just like they call 911 when 11 year old little Johnny refuses to go to school…
Tried and Frustrated says
Fiik, do you know who your father is are were you raise by wolfes.
Do I need to say it or are y’all already thinking it?
Prejudice? Yup. That being said, I dont believe that Im any more prejudice than blacks are against white people. In fact I believe that they are more prejudice/racist towards whites. Don’t know if some of the tree huggers on this thread talking about hate are white or black, dont care, but you speak out of both sides of your mouth. You ax, I answered.
Soul Crusher says
I guess that would make you an EQUAL OPPORTUNITY HATER. You hate’m all the same……..
Tried and Frustrated , I know exactly who my father is, he was more of a man than you could ever be, you liberal spouting hack.
Jack Rabbit says
Will the white kids protesting about poor Bob Richardson who murdered his father be along to help this kid out?
I’m guessing not, but lets all wait and see….
Right! How can we forget!
He has the mind of a child – he did not know that picking up a gun and pointing it at another person, and pulling the trigger, would result in serious bodily harm!
Where is the mother? Where is the daughter?
I don’t care if the kid is black, white, yellow, orange, green…whatever…attempted murder. He made the decision to try to be the tough guy and use a gun to solve an issue.
Real tough now, ain’t he.
What is the issue with that whole area of Edgewood?
The issue with Edgewood, and vast swaths of urban America? I’d say the problem is a cultural one involving glorification of violence, attacks on self-improvement, poor family structure, drugs, and blaming others for poor choices. Pretty obvious to me, but those changes need to come from within.
This is simply the most intelligent statement I have ever read on the Dagger comments section ever. Unlike most of the people who comment, I bet you didn’t even have to use spell check when you were finished typing either. Well done, PB.
Really! Presented very well and an absolute truth!
Burn Down Edgewood says
I’m glad I live in Willoughby Beach but I wish there was an overpass that would allow me to get home withought driving through Edgehood.
Luther Lingus says
can’t the county just buy up all the townhomes & apartments in edgewood and turn them into 2 acre single family homes
I would pay extra taxes for that purchase
Burn Down Edgewood says
Liberty Lover says
And then where would you put all the displaced families? In your backyard?
Put them back into the City – in those fancy new, vacant, condos near the Inner Harbor.
The condos would not be fancy for long, they would tear them up like anything else we give to them.
Luther Lingus says
No, I would put them at your house jackass.
I disagree I grew up in Edgewood went to Joppatowne high school and I went to spelmen university and Howard university and there nothing wrong with Edgewood so grow up people
Daddy Rabbit says
Bree, you are a true credit to all three of those education facilities. Your spelling, and ability to write a cogent statement prove what a quality education can do.
I highly doubt that you went to school Bree.
Hell yea, Im no more prejudice than Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson. I wonder why people to sit on the George Zimmerman case do not want to be idenified? What Does the statement “No Justice No Peace” mean. The answer to both is if the jury does dont convict Zimmerman the jurors fear for their life and be prepared for riots, I will protect my family and property at all cost.
A fine collection of people to compare yourself to Ed.
Steve Jacobs says
Does his head look lopsided? It looks like a peanut.
There is a defect with the head, looks like somebody beat him with a bat in the side of his head, I would say is brain is the size of a peanut.
This kid lives a few houses down from me… he’s just as ghetto as the rest of his family. I want out of this area so bad… we made a terrible decision buying in this area but it was a rushed one. We are the only white people on the block and I’m not about to let my son be the only non ghetto child on the bus stop. I need out!
Than get the hell out, do what you need to do to save your kid, even if it means you lose money. Your kid is the highest priority.
Just do what many other Edgewood housewives do: Accompany your kid to the bus stop with a gigantic dog on a leash.
And I agree with Ed, your kid is more important than money.
Luther Lingus says
Stop making mortgage payments on your townhouse now. Take the money you pay on your mortgage and start banking it. It will take about two years for them to evict you. In the meantime, go find a place in a better neighborhood with better schools. You can repair your credit in a few years. It will cost you more if you lose your kid to the ghetto then if you lose your home and credit to it.
Please tell me how of all the “other” non thug places to live in edgewood, you picked behind the Giant???? If that was a realtor please do me a favor and do not recommend her to anyone esle…you got PUNK’d. Unless you thought you’d get in on a cheap townhome steal in Section8Ville…lol…..yeah, you should have done your homework… try driving to the other side of 24….. thats the tracks of Edgewood…. so no please don’t bring that over here
Seriously though after you slap your realtor…slap yourself
I still see people drinking on their stoops at noon during the work week when I drive around the Willoughby Beach side shopping for new rental properties. True, it is less ghetto than behind the Giant, but not much.
Actually I live in the brand new townhomes on Trimble which are NOT section 8 and if you were smart enough to read the whole article you would have read that the place the kid lived was NOT behind giant either it… the shooting took place behind giant. The shooters family rents down the street.. it wouldn’t be ghetto if they didnt allow ghetto ppl to rent these individually owned houses
Well, Jessica, in all fairness you bought right outside the gates of a military installation. That, in itself, is a bad idea in any state.
Coupled with the fact that the zones surrounding installations are usually full of crime, you are outside the chemical weapons destruction facility. That entire area, and those single family homes on the other side of the road, are all built on an old dumping / impact area. Dig far enough down and who knows what you’ll find!
Take advantage of a few policies enacted by our current president to help out “those in need” in the housing market. Take the advice of others, and get out now… Short sale, sighting crime and family hardship in the neighborhood. Cite the need to move out of the neighborhood for safety reasons, and I am sure that nobody in the immediate area will fault you for that.
DIS NIGGA IS INNOCENT UNTIL DA JUDGE PROVE HE NOT GUILTY! NO WAY BABY ANDRE SHOT ANOTHA NIGGA! HE ALWAYS SMILIN AND SHIT WHEN WE IS AROUND HIM!
Please do not respond… if you morons haven’t figured it out yet across the message boards. “MADBLACKWOMAN” is neither black nor a woman. Dagger gives anonymous kids, and that includes adults, the ability to be anonymous and stir up commotion.
The idiots on this post will actually fall for this and start going back in forth in racist rants. The beauty of anonymity is that ignorance has a shed to spew more stupidity.
Mike Welsh says
It also gives you anonymity. For all we know, you could be madblackwoman. How is it that you know madblackwoman is neither black nor a woman?
Ron Burgandy says
You stay classy Dagger
A Student says
The amount of racism on this blog is disgusting.
Everyones Problem says
Thank You PB
In case people haven’t noticed, Mountain Christian Church is trying to do something about the problems in Edgewood. They’ve rented and refuted the abandoned storefront on rt 40 and are opening a community center. Check out http://touch.baltimoresun.com/#section/-1/article/p2p-75172422/ to see people want to do something positive. Better than just complaining or spewing inflammatory words.
…refurbished… (auto spell mistake)
Homey was just trying to feed himself. Gonna rob a Nigga. His Momma’s welfare check didn’t come and him and his 5 sisters and 10 brothers were hungry. Food Stamps were all gone and the kids are too old to get WIC anymore. They didn’t pay their $10 rent for the month and BGE wont turn their power back on cause they black. BGE is racist
Old Skool says
Now that’s some funny shit right there Holding, but unfortunately it’s all true. When the hi rises were demolished in the City where do you think they sent the ghetto roaches. That’s right Edgewood. Look what happened to White Marsh Mall once the MTA made stops out there. I was born and raised in HarCo but I have worked in the City for over 25 years. On a daily basis I see shit you wouldn’t believe. Free phones, low rent housing, subsidized utility payments, etc… Us whitey’s are the stupid ones for going to work and paying for their lifestyle. My car is 10 years old, they drive late model Lexus, BMW’s and Cadillac’s. The beginning of every month they buy seafood and filet’s while I eat ground beef and tuna fish. They have the largest TV’s while I watch a 32″. They have every gaming console on the market and I’m still playing my Atari 2600. Us whitey’s need to stick together against the eventual uprising that will come in the near future.
He capped him cause he had to ax twice for the money
Tried and Frustrated says
For those of you that don’t like Edgewood move to Cecil County where the rednecks rape and kill 10 year old girls.
Thy Humble Servant says
It’s not Edgewood, it’s the poverty stricken racist families who live there and feel that they are entitled to everything, yet do nothing to earn for themselves. They are owed everything, yet earn nothing. They do nothing for themselves, everything is handed to them.
They are too lazy to work, or feel that most jobs are above them – believing that they should be earning $100,000 a year without a high school education. Instead of providing, they figure out the system and reap the benefits of numerous poor decisions made by our government to provide for those who don’t to sh1t for themselves. Instead of working, they claim they are “disabled” and thus unable to work, get a ghetto doctor to vouch for them, and obtain government handouts off of the back of those hard working Americans who actually pay their taxes.
The house has not been cleaned in 10 years, dust is an inch thick, dishes are filthy, the place smells like a public restroom at a Mexican truck stop…
…but the kids are wearing Fubu, Timberland, the latest Jordan’s; and let’s not forget the Cadillac Escalade parked in the driveway with $35,000 chrome spinner rims that are way too big for the vehicle, and the $10,000 sound system in the SUV because driving around town with rap music blasting is just, by far, the coolest thing that anyone can do.
Oh, and the wall of new hats, with the labels still attached.
That is why people hate Edgewood…
You just described a family in Kingsville.
It must be your house because says, how else would you know it’s in kingsville, YO.
Personal Responsibility says
“Blaming someone else for your poor choices (PB),” is the most accurate statement. Taking personal responsibility for your actions is the biggest issue for low income cohorts. I say “cohorts” because that includes every race and isn’t isolated to the black community. Really, we need to drop the “ax” and “hillybilly” stuff because it is so unproductive and arrogant. What makes one race more perfect than another? Nothing! We should be pushing character and humility. Y’all are being insane with the name callin. Stop judging and leave that up to God. I was called a hilly billy by my peers through put elementary, middle an high school. Clearly, I was misjudged and harassed. Think about how your words hurt the entire community.
PRS, who AX you.
Obviously you are a white trash hillbilly Ed who has delusions of moral superiority
Yup, rather be that than a FN killer, calling me a white trash hillbilly is a racist comment. You should be proud, you are right there with “YO”.
Fed up says
I want to know how many rounds he had in that pop tart? So while the State screws around with petty non-issues, real violence thrives in MD!
